say.... "wow"

i've fought it all my life but after spending
a few days in L.A. i finally folded. Of course
i demanded the cover.

waking up drunk inside a tent that reached a core temp of 113 degrees is the true catalyst to these photos. Ramon thanks for letting us crash in yer backyard and the classy playgirl layout.

-tears of a clown-

got the bike for bornfree fired up.
it's a been a long few weeks. So i was tuning
it a bit and kicked it to life, wanted to see
how the clutch was working and put it into
first, let out the lever and was on the maiden
voyage through the shop,, i hit the throttle and
the bike slid a bit. It felt so good to finally
be on it. This is all happening within about 40
feet. I aimed for the rear doors and pushed the
brake..... oh shit! i forgot to add fluid. I
tried to barney rubble to a stop but couldn't
pull it.... i blasted through the back doors.
knocking them completely off!! I had to take my hands off the bars and push the falling doors away from the bike. Next thing i knew i was outside the shop, me and the bike without a scratch!! Wasn't really planning on having to fix the doors for the next couple hours.... but better than the bike. Smile now, Cry later

4Q Conditioning..... ......................"Quit your day job you work for us now"

if this cyber baby seems a little quiet it's because it is... quiet on the outside gears grinding loudly inside my brain. the last month has been like a repo mans life. slippery slopes, sloppy slips, and ghost riding whips. Trying to wrap up a few things at the shop--this bike that i plan on bringing to bornfree 3. I actually just plan on getting it there, throttling it hard into too small of a doorway, clipping the end of the left grip on a door knob, and laying it down just in time for my medical insurance to run out. It will become a benefit bike. Sponsored by your local medical marijuana clinic. But seriosthly(with a lisp) this rant is to let you know that my GAME is salty right now, piss poor, and ranks an overall 2.4 out of 10. What happened to book reviews, embellished travel journeys, vintage club photos("i like that shit BRO, just stick with that"), passive aggressive subtext, and grade school photos of yours truly(..that's me Mac Sharff). They changed the Olympia can and I'm almost positive they've changed the recipe. What happened to TUMWATER and UNION MADE. Why does the can say Malt now? Highs, lows and ten variables of the in betweens. Betweens isn't a word but this is my BLOUOUG and this aggression won't stand. Every once in a while someone survives the jump off the Golden Gate Bridge and they come out of the water nude and confused, to me that is the ultimate rebirth....metaphorically and euphorically. Reward them, make them mayor and see what color flags they put up at the gates to the Castro. Cross country is over, it's about swimming in the Bermuda triangle in a star of david pattern. But your bikini has to be made before 1918 and the first one there is a rotten egg. Last night i read at 1 a.m. that we learn 90% of what "we" know from blogs. I believe that 101%. -(minus) of course the 35 years before that, this, and them. He doesn't answer his email. Dick. Sincerely Jane.

me and gonz 14yrs ago.....

i kinda forgot about this one.

i would drive by this
bump almost daily coming
from andy/wiggys ramp
back to the house.
but it was rough and slow
and just kinda lacked
due to the fact that by the time
you finished pushing your
ass off and got to the top of
the thing you were almost
at a stand still. Mark and i
were skating my vert ramp
from time to time and real
needed ad... so i asked
Mark if he wanted to ollie over
me on my motorcycle.
Mark always seemed
down for trying
some different kinda skate
shit. So we went by this spot
and i pulled out my
massive street legal mc90. I get
throttling and mark would
clench onto my shoulder with
his long fingers and nails and
we would haul at that bump..
he kicked it away a few times
only once the board into my
side. It ended up going down
pretty quick. My shoulder was
black and blue for days
after from Mark grabbing on for
the tow. The spots still
there and i still have the mc90.
mark you down for a redo?

thanks for the reminder
and all the rad content
